NBS TV’s Doreen Komuhangi will be among moderators in the upcoming Washington DC business expo.
The expo organised by Ugandans in the Diaspora under their umbrella UNAA Causes is part of a four-day convention scheduled August 31 to September 3, 2018 at Grand Habour in in the US capital Washington DC.
UNAA Causes Chairman Mr. James Serumaga reiterated to the Nile Post their commitment to a results oriented business Conference. He said the expo is a precursor for the launch of a restaurant chain business for Ugandans in diaspora.
“To effectively grow Uganda’s Export base we need to create demand for our products overseas instead of looking for a ready market, we have to find a way of penetrating the retail market in the Diaspora for us to effectively market our products, he said.
Speaking about her delegation to moderate the event, Komuhangi said she is happy to be part of the “fantastic idea” by the diasporans
“The project by Ugandans in diaspora will not only increase the country’s visibility beyond borders, create more employment opportunities for both Ugandans back home and those abroad in terms of decent jobs for our brothers and sisters in the diaspora but will also walk us towards seeing the Buy Uganda Build Uganda (BUBU) dream become a reality,” Komuhangi said.
“The Ugandan formal sector in its current form isn’t enough to accommodate all able Ugandans thus an opportunity for Ugandans to build global businesses talk about buying Uganda and building Uganda and increasing Uganda’s exports from the current 1 percent globally,” she added.
The UNAA Causes Business Conference will run two sessions; one on Friday August 31st and the Second on Sunday September 2nd.
Also part of the convention is an entertainment filled festival dubbed summer’s ultimate event which will feature a host of Ugandan artistes including; David Lutalo, Lydia Jazmine, Geo Steady, Fille Mutoni, Chris Evans and live music on a boat cruise courtesy of Uganda’s oldest band- Afrigo.
